Professor Leo de Haan gave his inaugural address on the occasion of the dies natalis of ISS yesterday. I am always astonished to see how well connected ISS is, and how many prominent friends attend its ceremonies. This is a real testimonial to the work of several colleagues who have built the reputation of the institute over time. At the reception afterwards, I had an opportunity to chat with the Mayor of the Hague about is vision for the development of the Hague Academic coalition, of which ISS was one of the founding partners. It is clear that there is a larger role to play for the EUR within the context of the cooperation with the universities of Leiden and Delft. The Hague is very ambitious in its desire to attract higher education around a number of themes, including the International City of Justice. Clearly, we will explore and pursue this opportunity further in the months to come.
